He connected with a fist to a face. Not the same thing.
Sure horford pulled the arm but anyone that thinks dvd didn't continue on into horford with the intention of being a hinderance on the play is a blind homer. I don't think dvd was being reckless or trying to hurt anyone but he was certainly letting horford know he was there.
Then of course big al just dropped the bow on him which isn't explainable.
Glad there's no suspension since there's no injury but wouldn't have been surprised if there had been one.
Cool you're cousin is well respected in NJ talking about a guy that's respected nationally?
Braxton's going to Alabama
in all seriousness I understand what you're saying BD and I don't disagree with it. I don't necessarily agree with you however specific to this instance. Top end d1 football is too big and powerful not to seek any type of advantage you can get, some people follow the letters of the rule, some follow the spirit and some just flat out break them. I'm not saying osu is doing any of the three but I also wouldn't be surprised if they were, I just hope they aren't breaking rules and I'd like to think they're looking out for all the kids they recruit.
Meh the SEC doesn't mind funneling illiterate players through their programs and then abandoning them when they aren't serving any more needs.
Is playing a kid that could potentially experience an injury really that far off? Especially when everyone runs a risk of serious harm when they play already regardless of medical histories.
Except I think you always find room for the best highschool player in the country depending on meeting them and feeling out their personality, regardless of depth.
You do know tamu has has a first round offensive lineman chosen in the NFL draft the last three years right? Two of those were top 5 I think.
I don't know what you're talking about I've started numerous freshman in NCAA football and they pick the speed of the game up quickly.
If he's healthy enough he needs to get some minutes so that he's smooth for the finals though
no hawks or carpenters in your mix?
But we only used two
Braxton had Herron and Hyde and an elite 2013 o-line. Both of whom are in the NFL your points don't make sense so I'm going to give up talking sense b
robiskie? really using him to strengthen your point?
theyre buckeyes and ill always support them but coleman and chekwa couldnt hold winfield/jenkins/roby/gamble or whitners straps... let alone the assassin's.
he left bennett on his own list so i think youre fine.
2 sport athlete.. maybe 3 if we taught him volleyball or 4 if we let him play lacrosse as well.
seantrel is starting in the NFL right now so we probably could have utilized him.
injured for more than half the year? then why did he run so many times during the b1g schedule?
The only games he missed were the noncons against UAB and Cal.
2/12 /= >50%
heck even if i gave you UCF and MSU which bookend the two games he missed, 4/12 /= >50%
28 and 26 rushes against the only two ranked opponents sure seems like the type of carries you would give your primary back... but what do i know.
You're old mother Hubbard and all you have is Vaughn in the cupboard.
so with your rationale people shouldn't wear jerseys because they didn't earn the offer to play football?
you're fooling yourself if Patton's or Kennedy's or some other figure had his tags for auction and the bidding didnt get high.
Wouldn't the article comments then be the best place to discuss that topic if what you say is true? I guess I still don't understand why you would create a topic just to defend yourself.
except that if he wasn't the "starting" RB why did the next closest player at his position have only 40 rushes the entire season in 2012? Maybe he "truly emerged" as you say in 2013 because he had 4 NFL caliber linemen working cohesively on the OL?
You say he started to blossom against wisconsin and ttun and i argue that hes been a force since his freshman campaign when he obviously felt he should have been getting more PT and what he showcased when given the chance proves he might have been right. Sure he went about it in a somewhat immature manner but that doesnt mean he wasnt right about himself.
Dan Herron is an NFL quality RB but Hyde is an All-NFL quality back and the fact he put up the numbers he was able to at OSU when we had shitty line play proves Braxton had help at the position every year he has been at OSU.
cool, a guy that was recruited, signed and coached by head coach jim harbaugh.
